Compatible Reflex Sight

Hey everyone, just wondering which brands make decent Reflex sights/Low profile red dot sights for under 50$ that will fit a common 20mm AKS-74U rail?

Any help would be appreciated.

Similar to that question (except I'll spend good money on a good sight) any good reflex sights with more than 1x magnification? Oh and how are the red/green eotech 552/553 from ebaybanned and ehobbyasia? Whats the difference? I like those black red/green dots that you can change the retical but my friends got them already and the eotech look soooo sweet!

Keep in mind that the Eotech 552 is supposed to be an hollowsight and NOT a red dot. If you want a proper red-dot that match it's real counterpart, look for an Aimpoint. I got 2 Aimpoints and they are good red dots. You can't change the reticule patern or the color, but the point intensity do change, wich is important for CQB/ low light and daylight outdoor use.

Doctor make nice little reddots too.

Armson makes amazing RDS. technically, they are OEG (occluded eye gunsights). they have a steep learning curve and are not for everyone, but they are the best. because they are powered by ambient light, they automatically adjust its brightness to teh surrounding environment. they are virtually indestrictible and can take a beating. just just their design, this is evident.

http://www.wgcshop.com/pcart/shopper...-14_cat_Scopes is the only one I can think of off the top of my head. Otherwise, you can take any regular red dot and mount a magnifier like http://www.wgcshop.com/pcart/shopper...3XE_cat_Scopes behind it.

Erennert, check out Huang's Aimpoint M2 clone. Under $50 for a red dot in Canada is pretty slim pickings.

all RDS have unliminted eye releif. its only when you get into magnification where you start having that problem.

Ok thank-you. But can anyone recomend a nice, but cheap Reflex site? Something simple, and will fit onto the 20mm rail?

King arms reflexs sights are 75 bucks on airsoftparts.ca

Thats a little above what you wanted, but they are pretty solid.

A friend of mine has one, its great, no fancy features, but it does its job

G&P Aimpoint for looks. Tasco RDS for price. you can get the latter at any sporting goods store. hell, even wal mart carries them.

I've had a Tasco, and hate it. I love the look of the small Reflex, with the screen. Then it has the 4 different reticles. Is that the G&P one?

Hey Erennert, Sorry for jacking the thread. That one for 75 on airsoftparts.ca is really good! Thats the one my friends have and they love it, goes from light to bright both green and red you can change the retical from four or five different patterns. That extra 25 is really worth it man, every red dot I've seen cheaper has an antiglare coating or ruby coatoing on the outer lens that actually reflects light quite noticabley. But get what you want and can afford.

IMO, aiming devises are an important purchase, because you will be using them in all firefights. If they are crap, your aim will be crap.

That is true with scopes and RDS.

Before buying one, I suggest you look at reviews.

You want a crisp dot that is not blurry, fuzzy or "star shaped".
You also want it to be ajustable for wind and elevation.
You also want it to have a dimmer on it, to match the light condition.

These 3 elements are the 3 mains things that are important in a RDS. The rest depend on what the user want.

I paid 120$ for my Aimpoint comp2 replica that is laser engraved... IMO the best Aimpoint replica. Still, it's a long shot from the real one. (I tried one and cried...) But it still a very effective sight for CQB and close range outdoor engagements.
